Long-ago trip

Post by Rich »

Today is something of an anniversary. On May 8, 2002 we took delivery of N40XE and started the trek back. Spent the night in Marquette, MI, beating a big-time rainstorm into KSAW.

The next morning (after that multi-hour rainstorm) we had some ramp partners.

Nice pals! I happened to have Airforce Two parked next to my previous plane (July 30th, 2017) in Tallinn airport, when the USA vice president was visiting Estonia.

Or well, not really "next to", as the security margin was pretty big :)
